MorphSVGPlugin but stay in same place

I'm wondering if it's possible to use the MorphSVGPlugin only for the shape, not for the position of elements.


My use case: I want to morph an object randomly into one of many objects. I know I can duplicate the objects onto every drop, but I feel like there's a better solution.


Thank you!

  • Solution

The path of an element has a lot of position data on it , so what I would do is create several SVGs and place them on a grid, then have a separate SVG with the morph data and animate each path in a SVG to a random path, with this they stay in place.


@PointC has a better explanation over here


My understanding was that if you add `repeatRefresh: true` to a tween it would recalculate on each repeat, but I never can get it to work, or I'm just really lucky and my random luck is insane!

@mvaneijgen That's very clever! Thank you. I could even try to nest SVGs as this (surprisingly) seems to work, too.
